OSOG – Rebellious Acoustic Americana.
OSOG is an exotic musical collective from Tel-Aviv.
These Middle Eastern anti-heroes are taking the classic old-time and country sounds, injecting them with heavy doses of head-banging energy and attitude, while keeping the music authentic and true to the core.
This large outfit brings together punk rockers, metal-heads, jazz and classical players, and each show is a celebration of creativity and love for music. So far, OSOG has released 3 independent studio albums and toured North America and Eastern Europe.
In 2017 the band was invited as official showcasing artists to the Folk Alliance International convention and were praised by many as the best, most groundbreaking show of the festival. OSOG finished their triumphant American trip in a studio in North Carolina, where they recorded a new album, their first recorded on American soil, set to be released later this year.
The Jellyman’s Daughter
Scottish duo The Jellyman’s Daughter lands squarely in the middle of a strange crossroads between bluegrass, post-rock, folk and soul. Mixing their unique vocal harmonies with wild and visceral cello, driving guitar and sweet mandolin, Emily and Graham write their songs together with a focus on doing something new.
The Jellyman’s Daughter have now finished their second album, ‘Dead Reckoning’. The new album takes its title from a navigational term that, when applied to the human spirit, is analogous to navigating our way through life, and how we progress (or otherwise). This theme permeates the 10 songs on the new record in different ways, ranging from the overwhelming sense of bleakness imbued by many world events in recent years to more personal experiences of steering a course through relationships and journeys both physical and emotional. Featuring prominently is banjo player Jamie Francis (of Radio 2 Folk Award nominees Sam Kelly & The Lost Boys) and double bassist Paul Gilbody (KT Tunstall, Adam Holmes & The Embers) while Toby Shaer (Cara Dillon, John McCusker) provides fiddle on two songs. Graham himself wrote the arrangements for the 16-piece string orchestra, while Edinburgh-based composer Luci Holland conducted the ensemble during recording. The album is a marked step forward in maturity, depth and scope while retaining the affinity that is the foundation of the duo’s sound.
